2020-03-25 Interview with Sunrise on 7, Australia
Just last month, Adam Lambert was rocking out with Queen in front of a stadium crowd at the Fire Fight Australia concert.
Now, like most, the pop superstar’s life has dramatically shifted due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

The 38-year-old has been forced to postpone concerts and a packed promo schedule for his new album due to social distancing recommendations.
But he hasn’t let the pandemic stop him from sharing the new music with his fans, officially releasing ‘Velvet’ last Friday.
“We were already ready to go, the release strategy was there, we had everything lined up, so it kind of felt like let’s just keep going”, the singer told Sunrise via Skype from LA.
“People are at home, they need an escape and Velvet will give them that escape, I swear!”
The singer says the album, his first in five years, pays homage to his “favourite music and artists from the 70s and 80s.”
“Hopefully it inspires people at home to put on something flashy, make a drink and have a dance party.”
As for self-isolation, Lambert says spending time alone has forced him to “chill out and reflect.”
“I think in a weird way when it’s over this is going to bring us closer together – it’s a shared experience, we’re all in it.”
“I find myself making more phone calls than I usually would – it’s forcing all of us to connect more which is really beautiful.”
